The Miraculous Medal, or the Medal of the Immaculate Conception, was introduced by Saint Catherine Labouré after a vision of the Blessed Virgin Mary. Many Catholics and even non-Catholics wear the Miraculous Medal believing that if it’s worn with faith and devotion it will bring them special graces through the intercession of Mary at the hour of death.
The Medal is often worn together with the Brown Scapular. Such items of devotion are not charms and should not be construed as being either “magical” or superstitious (two conditions which are contrary to the teachings of the Catholic Church) but serve as constant physical reminders of devotion.
I think it’s a great idea to wear both the Miraculous Medal and the Brown Scapular and want to give you a way to get a very special Miraculous Medal for free. At the very least, let it be a constant reminder to you of whom you belong to and where you are ultimately going.
In spreading devotion to Mary, the Mother of God, the Central Association of the Miraculous Medal is giving a free gift of a blessed Medal of the Immaculate Conception. Simply click here to get this by mail at no cost.
